Godfrey Garza said Tuesday that if the compensation was right, he would be willing to stay as consulting director of the Hidalgo County Drainage District until current bond election projects are completed.
Garza said this at a meeting to discuss what requirements would be necessary for a person to replace Garza in that role.
Commissioner Joel Palacios of Edinburg was in favor of Garza staying until the projects were completed instead of trying to bring in a new employee during the middle of them.
One of the requirements recommended by Garza was the person hired to replace him should be an engineer. Garza is not an engineer, but he has been with the drainage district for 19 years and rose through the ranks before his retirement.
